About this template

This template was developed based on a discussion on the Ireland talk page regarding objection there to the use of the term "British Isles". It is based on the original British Isles template developed by Lofty for use on articles relating to those islands. By default it will insert the above template but has the possibility to set a different title, if necessary.

It is proposed that articles where the community would prefer the use of a different term first reach a consensus with regard to what other term(s) to use and then insert the template, adjusting the title as necessary.

How to use this template

The template can be inserted on a page in one of two ways:

1. Where there are no objections to the use of the term "British Isles" on a page, use the following:
{{British Isles}}
2. On articles where there are objections, first reach a consensus as to what other term(s) to use, then insert the template using the following code (replacing "Title" with the agreed title):
{{British Isles|Title}}

Collapsible option

Initial visibility: currently defaults to autocollapse

To set this template's initial visibility, the |state= parameter may be used:

  • |state=collapsed: {{British Isles|state=collapsed}} to show the template collapsed, i.e., hidden apart from its title bar
  • |state=expanded: {{British Isles|state=expanded}} to show the template expanded, i.e., fully visible
  • |state=autocollapse: {{British Isles|state=autocollapse}}
    • shows the template collapsed to the title bar if there is a {{navbar}}, a {{sidebar}}, or some other table on the page with the collapsible attribute
    • shows the template in its expanded state if there are no other collapsible items on the page

If the |state= parameter in the template on this page is not set, the template's initial visibility is taken from the |default= parameter in the Collapsible option template. For the template on this page, that currently evaluates to autocollapse.
